obviously oversees medicare and medicaid services. >> they're not defining the words vast majority, are they? >> well, that's really the question. that is a phrase from the white house from the administration. we've heard president obama use it. what exactly does that mean? you heard the testimony today of todd todd park where he said that the website right now is operating at half capacity. 28 to 30,000 people able to use it. and the goal i'm told is 60,000. so far short of that, but still the capacity has increased at this point. so at what point does the white house, does the administration consider the vast majority to have been reached? we obviously know that that vast majority is downgraded expectationing from what we've heard just in the last couple of weeks. >> i must say jeffrey zibts, the man in charge of trying to fix it has been using that phrase, vast majority from the moment he took on this new assignment for the president. bianna, thanks very much. chris christie right now is riding pretty high as he fends off questions about 2016. now we have new numbers on the foblt next bat
security was changed after time. medicare. it's just that we weren't living in this world where we see every minute of all the problems. so, if it gets fixed and people feel it's a good law, that will change a lot for him. itself doesn't, this is his suggest law. >> how is he using his bully pulpit? >> the question is i think sometime he used it very well and other times not enough. i think that what i don't understand is he had such a great communication ability in those elections and maybe it's harder to be in the bully pulpit. think when he gave the healthcare speech to the joint session of congress. it was good speech, finally explained the healthcare law, and then joe wilson yelled, you lie and that becomes the story. it's very hard to keep a sustained story today when we have breaking news every two minutes. >> you know history better than anyone else. the acknowledge addition between the sides -- agitation between the side, do you think it's really seepingally unique today? i'm looking back at 19 -- >> not as bad as the 1850s, guns on the floor. >> those were the days. >> those
a look at medicare. the largest single -- going to be the largest single social insurance program we have in our nation before this plan. the biggest change to that program ever actually happened 38 years after the program was introduced in 2003, when president obama introduced a drug benefit into the plan. but that took legislative approval. i don't see any way that we can fix this law, fix the things that are wrong with it, until congress finally gets away -- until the republicans get away from a position of just trying to defeat it to actually trying to fix it. >> jonathan gruber, economics proffer at m.i.t., former adviser to the white house, that was an intensely clarifying discussion for me tonight. thanks for being here. >>> lots to come tonight, including a crash course on how to be really, really bad at the job of former president of the united states. it's a job not that many people have it, but now we know what it looks like to stink at that job. stay with us. the secret is out. hydration is in.

he was referring to the vast majority of americans who either have medicare or medicaid or who get -- and most people who get their health insurance through their company. they keep their plans. but that distinction wasn't made. and the president gave an opening for the politics you're talking about. and the president has to realize and i think does now realize that the same sort of media dynamics that led to the argument for health care -- in other words, the vail of poor people who can't get coverage and are scammed in the system, the media lens can turn around and put the spotlight on people who are denied coverage. which is exactly what's happening now. and i think the president who is so good at the big picture, at framing the big picture, i think realizes that he needs to make that big argument again because it exposes the republicans' real game here. which is to repeal the law. that's their only game. and they say it openly. they say it absolutely openly. all the hours of talk you hear about what's wrong with the website, the republicans don't care what's wrong with the webs
